Awesome! It's a great way to use up scraps of paper. Magazine pages are one of my favorites to use!

This is a great way to make some fascinating beads! I have 2 necklaces made by girls in Uganda that were made this way and they are quite attractive. Had I not been told that they were made from paper triangles, it would have been difficult to figure out just what they were.
Erin Bassett
I love the Uganda beads too! Now you can make them too. :)

I keep thinking of trying them, but I have my hands in so many fires that I just don't currently have the time!
